Overall Review: It is unbelievable how fast this proc is. The hype about it is true. It replaced a system with an older i7 slow proc. I love the built-in video saving me from needing a video card (I am not a gamer). It is beautiful and renders video productions with sensational ease.
Sounded Great in Ad - Can't Configure
Pros: The feature set was exactly what I needed
Cons: No way to configure the product. There is only a QR/QA code that needs to be scanned. But it leads nowhere. Tried several different scanning software. Nothing.
Overall Review: Tried emailing the manufacturer but no response. Do NOT buy this doorbell.
Pros: - Lots of room - Cable management is awesome - Very versatile - Air or water cooling - Case connections are on the top edge
Cons: - Larger than "normal" ATX cases - Instructions for installing a 5.25 inch CD/DVD writer are poor but a video (thanks support!) was very helpful
Overall Review: This case is a behemoth. It's big inside and that was welcome relief for my fat fingers (I am 68). It is large so that there's room for water cooling stuff if you ever need that. I don't, but it was so nice having extra space to work with. Most cabling can be shunted away from the interior with channels on the bottom, side, and back. The version I bought had a drive bay for a CD/DVD writer, and the interior support for it seems the only weak part of this case. I haven't had to use the DVD yet (cables not here so far) but ieems OK thanks to a video from support (thanks!). This is a solid case, well built, nice machining, and forethought. It's heavy so be prepared when the big box arrives. You won't be sorry.
Excellent Cooling Tower
Overall Review: Took a while to decide what to cool my new i9 system proc with. I just knew I did not want to mess with water unless I just had to. This fan and heat sink is awesome and works very well. The hardest thing was deciphering the awful instruction booklet. A youtube video made it easy to figure out. The fan that attaches to the cooling tower can be mounted on either side so depending on the configuration of your RAM chips one side or the other might be used. It's a great bargain and works well. My thanks to the Cooler Master support folks who helped me find the right video to best explain the LGA1200 installation details. It saved me!
Easy to Install
I have an older MSI laptop that came with only 4GB of RAM. It worked pretty well for a couple of years but as my work got more involved with higher need apps (photoshop, publisher, etc.) it was slow and getting slower. I ordered two of these memory chips and they have revived my old machine. They arrived very quickly and were easy to install. Thanks!
